Tatzu Nishi is internationally renowned for his large-scale public projects. His works transform familiar public items, such as a city monument or streetlight, into an object placed in a private space, like a living room or a hotel room. By transforming public structures into private spaces, he demolishes the notion of the everyday and provoke an intense frisson of excitement in the viewer.
